De Goey. I definitely would. But not sir anything more than a first round pick.

He's such a tease, if his body holds up he's got the ability to be anything, like Dusty anything. Unfortunately he just injures himself standing still. It's a risk but you have to roll the dice on the really top end players. After Hanners we might be a bit gun shy though. His best it incredibly good. I think like Gresham he might have to play mostly as a full time forward to keep his body in some kind of fitness, that might make guys like Butler and Higgins harder to use.

I think he is a forward.. but he’s that type of forward that can change a game. I’d back is to get him right.. depending on what it costs, I’d have a red hot dip. Wont have a better opportunity to snag him. Seemingly getting most of the blame for Collingwoods poor form - which is pretty unfair.

Getting a big contract at a new club doesn't always entice players to find a new gear or attitude.
I'd only want us taking him without parting with a first and without a giant contract, after he's had a reality check like Dusty got when he shopped himself around.

I still remember when we used to have the same sort of conversations about Dusty...could be anything, world at his feet, his best is elite but he can’t run out a game.

Same for Goddard.

De Goey is still young enough to take his career to the next level. He just needs to be prepared to put in the work and focus on his game.

I tip my hat to players like Battle, who have outstanding work ethics. They recognise their deficiencies and work doubly hard to get the most from their strengths while continually trying to improve in other areas. McKenzie and Joyce are also good examples of players who have been able to stay on a list through effort and sacrifice.

You want to reunite him with Bucks too, you are walking a line most don't want to cross.

Unless he stabs an old lady we aren't getting him without a FRDP involved. To get him for one would be an achievement.

Not for the $800k a year he wants
600 to 650 at most

Goddard and Martin were both dominating by the time they were 25 though.

Well like you said he's a tease and loves an injury. First round picks and big contracts are for guys that produce week in week out (see Brad Hill).
No way would I give up a first this year, and a future first would cost us a crack at Bing in the next 3 years.
Mikka is keen, but I'd be leaving this shiny thing on the ground like we did with Treloar.
